This is a South Dakota site, and the local town is Pickstown. There are a number of dive sites in the lake; all of them are beach walk-ins. There is not a lot to see, but then seeing at all is a good thing when it comes to diving the Mighty Mo. So we brag about 10 to 15 feet. The spear fishing (in season) is good and this is a great training site. Dive flag and care will need to be taken, as there are lots of boats (by SD standards) on the lake.
